The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) is investigating a collision between two bulk carriers taking place early Sunday morning in Vancouver Harbour, British Columbia.

The TSB said it has sent a team of investigators after the MV Caravos Harmony and the MV Pan Acacia collided at approximately 00:20 local time.

The 2013-built Caravos Harmony is registered in the Marshall Islands and is 229-meters in length. AIS ship tracking data shows it had just arrived at the port from Tacoma, Washington around the time of the accident.

The Pan Acacia, built in 2010, is registered in Panama and has a length of 291 meters. AIS shows it arrived from China on March 13.

The TSB statement did not provide any details regarding damage, injuries or pollution resulting from the incident. 

Both vessels remain at anchor in Vancouver.
